I have been experiencing this morning anxiety for months now. It seems to be pretty common. I can totally relate to how you are feeling. Some days are better than others, I have noticed that.

I too have wicked anxiety and panic in the mornings.  Usually by 10:30 A.M. I start to feel more like me.  I still go through the "what it's " and other worry patterns (looping thoughts) but they are not as uncomfortable as the first chunk of my morning.  We are all in this same boat together!❤

For me, mornings are the worst part of my day, with anxiety, panic and the "what ifs" looping thoughts that are intrusive in my brain.  By about 10:30, I begin to feel a little bit more stable.  So I am in the same boat as all of you.  We are stuck in this boat together, which is better than being alone ❤

I have this. I have a sense of anxiety right upon waking, which usually leads to feeling depressed and not wanting to wake up at all. Does this honestly get better? I've never really been a morning person and I used to sleep in whenever possible. I can't sleep in anymore because of withdrawal and the fact that my wife and I have a daughter. But I'm tired of never feeling excited in the morning and only dread for the upcoming day. All I look forward to is night time.

I always have a cup of coffee in the morning. It gives me something to look forward to, and I always feel a whole lot better after I drink it. Of course, for some people, coffee revs up their anxiety, so proceed with caution. You could have a cup of hot chocolate instead. That too may rev up the anxiety, but it really cuts through the depression.

I definitely have morning anxiety and would love to hear any suggestions about how to beat it. I've tried deep breathing, drinking water, gratitude, yogurt, and peppermint tea. What works for others?

Cuddly,

Getting out of the house and walking 5 miles makes it go away 90% of the time for me, even though sometimes I donít want to get up. It can come back periodically during the day but nothing like as bad and I can manage it with breathing.

Best

Hi

Amongst other w/d symptoms Iím struggling bad with morning anxiety, it had gotten a bit better but Iím slammed with it again, as soon as I open my eyes it starts , my stomach is in knots I feel so anxious itís awful I just feel desperate, I lay there because I canít get up at 4am because the day is so long anyway, I try everything, breathing exercise, counting , thinking of colours etc but it churning away, when I get up I have some cereal then go for a 30 minute walk to try and distract which helps a bit. Iíve had days totally anxiety free so I know my brain can do this I just hate it so much itís scary and I worry it will never go but most say it does eventually.
